It’s important to dress for the job you want, not the job you have–unless you work at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in which case you have to wear a hazmat suit even if you’d rather be a gym teacher. Fight the disease of unfashionability with this Groupon.
$10 for $25 Worth of Tailoring Services
Among the items Winnie’s staff alters are suits, pants, leather items, hats, and dresses. They can tailor the sleeves of a coat ($35), hem skirts and dresses ($15 and up), and adjust pant waists and seats ($26). Costs may vary slightly depending on the individual item–but in those instances, the staff will consult with the wearer.
Winnie’s Fashion Design
Eponymous owner Winnie Williams uses Winnie’s Fashion Design as a stage from which she illuminates the mesmerizing world of fashion. Winnie lovingly curates a rotating selection of handmade clothing alongside a collection of exhibits, publications, and programs that educate her patrons about fashion. The shop’s staff alters clothing for clients and instructs the design curious in introductory and advanced clothing- and accessory-making classes. During classes, attendees learn basics, such as how to thread a needle, operate a sewing machine, and how to perform sutures on accident-prone dolls. They might also complete advanced projects, such as constructing a handbag from scratch. During its periodic fashion shows, Winnie’s Fashion Design shows off the modest, classy designs that characterize the company.
